    magtayo ng taxi airlift service at kikita yan. Same rationale was given for the SLEX-NLEX–patience for ease and development. But while it takes you faster to reach the end of it, it will nonetheless piss you up still. This is progress and tech development. At the toll plaza a long queues of impatient drivers are trying to eke their way into the unmindful cashier. Kanya-kanyang pilahan at di malaman kung saan ang tamang pila. It takes half an hour to pay up at mas mahaba pa ang oras sa pila kesa byahe. BAKA GANITO PA RIN. HWAG NA LANG KAYA?

  • wally bayola

    magkatotoo sana hehe

  • wally bayola

    Good luck talaga, sana matuloy at matupad, para sa next generation natin yan. kht na magka papatong patong utang ng govt, comisyon, kickbacks, anolamous deals, ok lang, at least may napuntahan kahit papano, kesa naman deretso sa bulsa ni napoles , o diva. Good luck nalang talaga.

    As if they just came up with those now. http://www.topgear.com.ph/news/plans-for-elevated-road-linking-nlex-and-slex-under-way

    That news article was way back from June 2010 so you still think that “PPP” you are referring to was Pnoy’s idea?

    Tell me can you tell all the PPP projects that Pnoy has accomplished?

  • …and it helps reduce air pollution. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Sent from my LG Washing Machine.

  • Good idea! This cuts pollution and helps us spend some calories. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I think the problem with long term urban planning is medium term leadership and short term memory. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Agreed! When I started college, MRT was halfway done… the benefits were obvious soon after MRT came into operation.

  • This is what we all hope for. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Agreed, in Singapore and other countries with diverse public transport, owning a car is actually less of a priority.

  • I sincerely hope you do not rob a bank ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Good point, although I don’t think this is for implementation within the next 3 years.

  • Do you want to help fund my hoverboard research project? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • …or… they should expand the PNR route to add more coaches? ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I think this is not a “blame game” but a “we’ve been dealt this so what do we do now game”

    For example, the current MRT and LRT plans were based on feasibility studies from Marcos’ time. Does that mean that it is a bad study or a good study? I think it means neither.

    The delay only means that the Filipino people took time to implement plans (because of priority of other projects, debt repayment, financing, etc.)

    The Skyway started in Ramos time but was finished in Erap’s time. The NAIA 3 feasibility studies started back in Ramos too but was only formally turned over under Arroyo. In the same way, some of these 2014 projects may be finished after Aquino’s term.

    Like I said before, I think long term planning (electricity, urban planning, education) often suffers from medium term presidencies (within that 6 years each one has his or her own priority) and from short term memory (we tend to forget what we started and why we started it).

    Precisely. Which leads me to the conclusion that even if those projects had been in the backlogs for a long time most especially that dredging project from PGMA’s time that was cancel, one would wonder why most projects that were clearly beneficial and not anomalous would be cancelled just because of politicking. This admin is notorious for doing that and the commenter above emphasized that fact hahahaha.

    WOW. I was supposed something intellectual, but seeing that this thread has been littered by comments from Aquino Apologists and other blind supporters of this BS administration, posting anything intellectual would be pointless. As long as the the Filipinos refuse to open their eyes, real progress would never happen in the Philippines. Good thing i left years ago.

  • Ken

    really? more concrete projects in the last 3 years compared to those done by GMA? I seriously hope you are kidding. I’ve hated her since she was a senator but that did not make me disregard her achievements. Piece of advise, do some research and stop drinking that Aquino Kool Aid. It’s just making you look ignorant.

  • Ken

    What was stupid about that comment? wow, nothing can be more stupid than the person who posted this one.

  • JonJon

    Hi Peter. You do realise that various solutions have been implemented to ease traffic in EDSA (just as example), but after a few years or even months, it was as if nothing has changed. They created paths along EDSA wherein you do not have to pass by any traffic light if you just go straight, yet to no avail. Traffic gets clogged up on different choke points due do public transport. C5 was opened to create an alternative route going north, now even that road is congested. Clearly lack of roads is not the only problem here. If we do not address the root of the problem, in a few years all these road improvements would be useless. I’ve been to a lot of other countries with dense populations, and i have to say we have enough roads. What we lack is discipline.

  • I’m afraid that if I publish an article on the projects started/accomplished under certain presidencies it will be automatically branded as biased… (to marcos, ramos, aquino, arroyo, etc. etc. )

    This tourism infographic for example attempted to show that the “Wow Philippines campaign” was not all bad ๐Ÿ™‚

    http://www.mymanila.net/2012/01/13/tourism-is-more-fun-in-the-philippines-a-quick-analysis/

  • That’s a good point JonJon

    I agree that disciple (and strict implementation) should be part of the process. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here’s some stuff to ponder though about capacity that you may find interesting.

    Road and Rail Capacity

    According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, the maximum capacity of EDSA is 1,600 buses and 280,000 vehicles. On average though, there are over 3,600 buses that ply EDSA while 300,000 other vehicles choke it – that means on average, EDSA is always over capacity. As for the MRT, the intended capacity is 350,000 passengers, but an average of 540,000 passengers use the MRT daily. So they’re all congested – buses, cars and the MRT.

    http://www.mymanila.net/2013/07/30/a-problem-called-edsa-pollution-congestion-and-lost-income/

    Rail network capacity

    Manila has had an MRT since 1984… but it still has one of the lowest rail network (in terms of km) in the region.

    is that what you call it now? Aquino Kool Aid? I have the impression that regardless of who is in the govt and what project is being implemented by the government, you just cry and complain and stay negative because you stick your head up to your ass and all you see is shit.
